I built and ran this website between 2000 and 2001, combining passion for popular music and programming. It was listed by MTV's now defunct MusicNewswire as one of the then nascent web's top twenty sources, alongside Billboard and VH1. The most exciting part of it — for a 13/14-year-old excited by new music — was receiving scores of pre-release CDs from record companies. The entire project was written entirely from scratch (frameworks and libraries were not the norm back then!) in PHP linking to a MySQL database, with HTML as well as a little CSS and JavaScript for the frontend; the code is available here.

S Club 7 To Promote Pepsi
8 April 2001 | 0:00:00 GMT/UTC

S Club 7 have been signed up to promote Pepsi. Pictures of the seven members of the band will appear on cans and bottles in about six weeks' time. The value of the contract has not been diclosed.

Regarding last month's incident with the male members of the band found smoking cannabis Pepsi has said, "Pepsi have been assured by the band that this was an isolated, one-off incident, Pepsi has chosen S Club 7 as the new faces of Pepsi as they are huge fans of their musical and performing abilities."

The band will not appear in television commercials but will be heavily involved with in-store promotions. They will not replace Britney Spears as the official face of Pepsi.

The band have said, "It's going to be weird to open the fridge and see ourselves staring back at us."
